True fact: Montreal's dining scene is, IMO, one of the best in the world. I just feel like we've got such a mosaic of cultures and talent and dedication in the city, and it really shines when it comes to our restaurants.
With that being said, it's true that we have tons and tons of great places to go eat at. With so much choice, it's for sure difficult to decide on a place to go eat at, which means not everyone's been to some seriously awesome spots. But no worries if you're having this issue, friends. I got you.
This Italian restaurant is kind of tucked away on Duluth; but trust, every pasta lover should absolutely get themselves there. The pasta is made fresh, the prices are incredibly reasonable, and they offer a few dishes (like their fried cheese appetizer) that you'll have a hard time finding as good anywhere else.
A newer restaurant, Cadet focuses on bringing the quality and freshness in all of their dishes. The space itself is incredibly welcoming and contemporary, making it the perfect spot for a celebration, a date, or pretty much anything.
This incredibly trendy Japanese restaurant in St. Henri will absolutely make all of your foodie dreams come true. A cozy and adorable spot, the dishes here are fresh, unique, and straight-up delicious.
A Syrian/Armenian restaurant near Montreal's Little Italy, Alep serves up tons of incredibly flavourful dishes that are spiced to absolute perfection. Protip? Get their beef tartare, and prepare to be amazed.
This Mile Ex eatery focuses on serving up pretty much any dish that's round. Although the experience itself is worth going for, their incredibly awesome dishes (like their juciy and tasty meatballs!) will absolutely hook you.
Montreal's Plaza Saint-Hubert is getting two self-driving buses that the public can ride for free as part of a pilot project that will be on from October to December 2021 and May to July 2022.
The two electric minibuses from the company Keolis will operate along a 2-kilometre loop between rues Saint-Hubert and Saint-André, and rues Beaubien and Jean-Talon.
There will be seven stops and the buses will reach a maximum speed of 20 km/h. Even though they're self-driving, an operator will still be aboard.
According to the city, the pilot project will study the "integration of this technology into the urban fabric" and will make possible the "cohabitation of autonomous shuttles with other means of transportation."
The buses will run "out of sync with the Line 30 buses in order to improve the population's active travel options."
There's enough room for 15 people aboard each bus, but, because of the current public health context, the city says only five will be allowed for the time being.

Vegan and vegetarian food used to an unappealing thought not long ago. But lately the trend of making healthy, cruelty-free food in new, fun and delicious ways has taken off and we no longer hear the words "vegan" or "vegetarian" tagged onto a dish and expect it to be gross.
Fruits and veggies are being made, not just as sides anymore but as the main stars of the dish! That's why we've seen so many cool and unique vegan and vegetarian restaurants opening up in the city, which is just so amazing!
Now there's new vegan/vegetarian restaurant opening up, and it's going to be seriously AMAZING!
